Re: Tom's Tahoe

Tom,

To shape the foam I marked on both side of leading edge 1” in,
Cut that off with a bread knife and then used the coarse mesh style sand paper on a rubbing block to round the edges, worked well.

Re: Bob Brown’s Belle

Bob,

I agree with Bob Perkins

I would complete off the cradle, your biggest challenge will be keeping your nice shiny trailer clean.

Top deck makes an incredible mess of the shop

Just my thoughts

Looking great and can’t wait to see you on the water

I will be doing aluminium for the b...

Re: 23’ Belle Isle “hooking”

Rich,

Sorry I know I have slightly high jacked the post but I think it is still relevant that we are talking about Belle Isle and hooking.
Agreed we need to see pics and video and get some more details on HoosierVets boat. Thought some of the video and pics may help.

Re: Virginia Barrel

When I done mine I cut both sides of the frame away so it was flush with the cutout if the keel and shapes to frame.

Hope it makes sense, was a few years ago for me now.
